The Drury Inn on Poydras Street will expand, adding an additional 60 suites on the property that’s now used as its parking lot.

Construction will begin this week on a new eight-story building, which will include two floors of parking with an additional 100 spaces. The new building will also include a ballroom and around 10,000 square feet of retail space on the third floor.

DSW Inns, the company that manages the hotel, filed a construction permit for $4 million last week. Construction is expected to take between 10 months to a year to complete.
